It's been a week since we've had the episode on how to upcycle a lamp and we thought it fit to do a project that can complement those lamps and be able to use everything in the same space. In this series called Let's Talk Fabric, we are bringing you weekly DIY home decor projects- all involving fabric of course. In this week's episode, we chose to combine cotton with denim to make two stylish, yet durable floor pillows!

If these pillows look familiar to you, that might be because we recycled some Love Story Fabrics from the Day Bed tutorial released at the beginning the month. We are big fans of optimizing every little piece of fabric (especially if it's been quilted and looks as beautiful as this one) so, for design purposes, we used it in our DIY. If you feel like using the same design technique, just click here, if not a piece of 31x22 in. fabric cotton still does the trick!
Given that floor pillows are meant to be, you know, on the floor- the fabric used for the bottom part is essential since it's the section that will wear out the fastest depending on the surface. When thinking options we wanted something stylish, yet last a long time - in the end, we went with denim. We chose a lightweight style called Wicked Sky that does the trick without breaking your sewing machine :)
Hope this video sparked the DIY bug in you and can't wait to show you what is coming next on Let's Talk Fabric!
